Yes. I know, it hurts to swallow. But it is a reality we have to face.
Forget the playoff wins. All he needed to do in those games was play at an average NFL level and the Jets were going to win. I never buy into a quarterback who is a "winner" - it means nothing. Now, there is a difference between playing well in key moments in a game, I think there is something to that - but judging a QB by simple wins and losses is stupid.
Anyway, I have said for a while that I Sanchez is simply not that talented of a player. He is slow with reads, and when under pressure, he tends to crumble more often than not. When he does make quick reads, they can be costly. He lacks elite arm strength and accuracy. Most importantly, he cannot consistently make stick throws into tight windows.
Basically, the only thing Sanchez does better than most QBs is that he can throw on the run.
If this offense continues to struggle to the point where the Jets miss the playoffs, the Jets need to make a decision on Sanchez. They will probably keep him, but at what cost? The Jets have a team loaded with talent, and need to win titles while they have the league's best defensive player.
Obviously, it is way too early to tell now, but just keep in mind, Sanchez is still on the clock.
Please, don't respond to "But he has 4 playoff wins!" - meaningless. When you throw a pick-6 that costs your team the game, do those 4 playoff wins get you those points back?
